I blame men. I blame their egos that seem to go on forever!
I especially blame John Boehner and his gross arrogance and egomania. Have you ever watched him sitting behind President Obama glaring away while the president speaks to the nation? Why on earth was “Obamacare” which is the Affordable Care Act passed in the first place? They had the time to make sure that everything was thoroughly gone over and that it was rational and fair to most. You can’t please everyone, we all know that, but this healthcare package is a glaring disgrace to anyone who voted in favor of passing it. It was neither a practical nor realistic bill and the fact that anyone voted in favor for it tells me that they didn’t know what was in the bill or they didn’t care. Either way it’s gross negligence on the job since they are supposed to be representing us.
Is the Affordable Care Act a good idea? That depends on who you ask. I believe that this will hurt far more people than it will ever help. The poor have always had access to medical care, while the middle and lower middle class have not and they are the ones now being stuck having to pay for it whether they need it or not and will also end up owing fines and penalties for not getting it. BAD IDEA!
Then there is the fact that most small business owners cannot afford to pay towards health insurance for their employees anymore. Who’s fault is this? The greedy healthcare corporations! It is also forcing many business owners to cut their employees hours so they will not be liable for paying their share towards it. A double whammy for some workers. How will this be remedied?
It’s a well-known fact that our Federal government is basically all but insolvent and the Affordable Care Act claims that those whose incomes warrant will have their premiums partially paid by Federal subsidies. It’s obvious that’s not going to happen. So what’s really going on here? Does anyone in office actually know what they are doing or is our government just a club for mentally incompetent elitists to get together so they can slap each other on the ass and trade fake compliments for yet another “spectacular idea” such as this?
